A scout from the Belgian side was at AZ’s 2-1 win over Utrecht on Sunday and have made their interest known to the club through an intermediary. Anderlecht are now lining up a €5 million bid.

Henriksen is open to leaving AZ this summer, but the Norwegian only wants to join a club where he can develop his game further, stating earlier this month that he would prefer to join a club from England, Germany, Spain or Italy.
